The Foundation is announcing a new scholarship opportunity established to support entrepreneurship,
free enterprise, and innovation. Burton D. Morgan Entrepreneurial Scholarships will be awarded to
students at the adult or collegiate level based on their entrepreneurial spirit and desire to succeed.
Applicants must be seeking needed skills and training to become successful as an entrepreneur. This scholarship was recently created with funds received from the Burton D. Morgan Foundation.
Applicants must be a resident of Ottawa County or an individual who is opening a business or currently has a business in Ottawa County, Ohio. The first recipient was Adam Pendleton, DVM, from the Marblehead area. With assistance from this scholarship, Dr. Pendleton is studying to become a certified equine acupuncturist. "Equine acupuncture is a growing field," said Dr. Pendleton. "Gaining this expertise will help me expand my practice and become an even more versatile practitioner to serve my equine clients."
Our scholarship funds assist local students in their pursuit of higher education and training.
"To serve as a mechanism for charitable giving and enrich the community by assessing and supporting local needs."
